towards your chest and then lower it back down. Repeat this on the other side while alternating
each knee to chest doing a total of 10 repetitions for each side. Perform a total of 3 sets of 10 repetitions
for each side. To Progress this exercise, simply perform
the exact same technique faster while you maintain control and stability when lifting
